The Dallas Opera says
Composing Conversations is an ongoing discussions series featuring some of the most noteworthy international composers. TDO believes in bringing their talents to Dallas whenever possible. Composing Conversations is designed to showcase all types of opera composers, from grand opera to chamber. This series will not only introduce you to some of these great talents but hopefully, ignite your interest in new operatic works.

This talk will feature Michel van der Aa. He has been described by Andrew Clements of The Guardian as “One of the most distinctive composers in Europe today. His ability to fuse music, text, and visual images into a totally organic whole sets him apart from nearly all his contemporaries.”

Pioneering European composer/technologist Michel van der Aa combines musical theater and multimedia in often-astonishing ways, as demonstrated in excerpts from his critically acclaimed Sunken Garden, The Book of Sand, and Blank Out (which premiered in this year’s Forward Festival, presented by Dutch National Opera). Expect extraordinary conversation with TDO’s General Director and CEO Keith Cerny, and a kaleidoscopic taste of the composer’s innovative approach to musical storytelling.
